Matt Stinchcomb
Scott Halleran/Allsport
He is an all-American type player on and off the field and NFL teams are falling in love with this guy, partly because of his skills, but also because of his intangibles. He is a natural left tackle, but isn't a real physical type player. He does not have great lower body strength or explosion and is somewhat narrow hipped for a premier guy. He does a nice job of coming off the ball, plays with good leverage and is a smart player that gets himself in good position. He is a finesse type player that gets by on technique rather than brute power. He has solid pass pro skills and decent range, but he is not a real pretty player. His problems come when he has to get into a short area "fistfight" and he simply is not a mauler and brawler. He's better in space than in close, but he will work hard to improve his weaknesses and this is the type of guy that will show up for work every day and give an honest effort.
